Johannes Nyholm: Baby Trashes Bar In Las Palmas

Swedish artist and film maker Johannes Nyholm (born 1974) created the beautiful puppetry music video "Twice" for Little Dragon, and has also made videos for The Soundtrack of Our Lives, The Tallest Man On Earth, The Knife, Jenny Wilson, The Hellacopters, etc.

His 13:30 min. short entitled "Las Palmas" (a favorite Canary Islands vacation spot among Scandinavians) will premiere in May. The very funny trailer "Baby Trashes Bar in Las Palmas" has gone viral with more than 3 million hits so far on YouTube.

The music used is "Låt in H-moll" [song in H minor] by Bjorn Olsson from the 2005 album "The Lobster".

I should probably add a disclaimer on behalf of the director: No toddler was harmed in the making of this film.
